PALM CITY, Fla. — InterVac Design Corporation has taken a significant step toward taking the guesswork out of operating on board equipment with the addition of the interVac Power Management System for recreation vehicles with 30-amp power systems.
The InterVac Power Management System for RoadVac allows RV owners to conveniently switch between two electrical devices, typically the compact built in vacuum and the RV’s microwave, water heater or other major appliances, to avoid overloading critical electrical circuits that trip the power off in 30-amp systems.
“Our power management option prevents the power from tripping the circuit breaker because it only allows one high demand system to be used at a time. It’s just another way interVac is adding convenience to the recreational vehicle experience,” said Peter Schlapkohl.
He and his wife and business partner, Susan, anticipate the new InterVac Power Management System for RoadVac will be very well received by the recreation vehicle manufacturing industry.
“I have just returned from meetings with a number of manufacturers in Elkhart, Ind.,” said Susan Schlapkohl. “Ease of installation, convenience for the customer and the fact it is made in the U.S.A, are among the top reasons manufactures are choosing to have our interVac products as standard equipment in their vehicles.”
The interVac Power Management System for RoadVac will be available to recreation vehicle manufacturers this summer.
For many years, some RV manufacturers moved away from featuring precision designed, built-in vacuum cleaner as foreign made vacuum manufacturers introduced bulky handheld or battery powered stick vacuum systems, Susan Schlapkohl said. That trend appears to be reversing with manufacturers realizing the benefits of featuring a “Made in the USA” product that is more powerful and convenient to use, she explained.
“Most, if not all, RV owners are tired of having to carry two vacuums in their vehicle. A battery powered one (with a battery life of only about 7 minutes) has half the power of InterVac, as measured in CFM, which is the standard measure of power for vacuum cleaners,” she added. “That lower powered vacuum may work okay on wood flooring, but another stronger vacuum is needed for carpet and tough cleaning jobs.
“Our RoadVac system cuts the clutter and doesn’t take up valuable closet space like a battery operated vacuum,” said Susan Schlapkohl. “Plus, it has superior cleaning power and an eight foot hose that extends up to forty feet to reach every inch of today’s modern recreation vehicle.”
Schlapkohl also said some manufacturers reported their customers complained of carpal tunnel syndrome type symptoms caused by holding up a heavy battery powered hand held vacuum that required pressure to hold down a trigger to vacuum.
“That’s another benefit of using a powerful InterVac vacuum. Our RoadVac system is ergonomically correct. There’s no wrist strain,” she explained. “You don’t have to hold down a trigger while holding up a heavy battery to vacuum. Power and ease of use — we simply have the best made in the USA product on the market.”
The interVac built in vacuum derives its name from its space optimizing size and ability to be placed in many different unobtrusive locations. interVac’s new RoadVac system measures just 11 inches wide, 6 inches high and is only 6 inches deep.
“The compact design has been engineered to be small yet pack an enormous vacuum punch that is unmatched by competitors,” said Peter Schlapkohl.
